The Old Fashioned Charm Of A Scottish Plaid Blanket

Vintage Scottish Plaid Woolcraft Robe Blanket

The old fashioned charm of a Scottish plaid the 1950's a plaid blanket could be seen quite often, on a couch as a throw when you felt a chill, at the end of a bed for a naptime cover up, in the family car to use during the drive-in movie, or as ground cover for a picnic! A plaid blanket, with it's homey, warm cuddly feel, is making a come back today. It fits in with many types of decor, including the modern look. There are new ones being made, but nothing can compare to the original 1950's blankets, which can still be found today! A vintage blanket has alot of 'life' in it yet!
Above is a plaid blanket made in the U.S.A., and below is one from Scotland! I think they have equal appeal, and color tones to please!
